president obama cut $716 billion from medicar medicare, which could seriously affect seniors or whether he saves $716 billion as he argued in the debate. >> $716 billion we were able to save from the medicare program by no longer overpaying, insurance companies, by making sure that we weren't overpaying providers. >> others, however, say they are not savings, they are cuts to medicare that short change providers such as doctors and hospitals. >> when you pay a provider of a service, much, much less than they actually need to cover their costs, many of them will stop supplying it. >> that is the same conclusion reached by medicare actuaries who determine the $716 billion cut would reduce reimbursements so much that medicare would be worth less to doctors that medicaid healthcare for the poor. >> so the senior citizen will be less desirable than welfare mother to doctors. when that happens, seniors are going to find long waits for care, find it difficult to find doctors who will see them and facilities admit them. >> some 15% of hospitals and nursing homes say they won't take any more medica
the medicare program to obama care. he treats it as a piggy bank. >> let's get the facts straight. under the affordable care act, 716 billion in medicare savings comes from suppliers, not clients. get this. ryan includes those savings in his own budget. as president clinton said it takes some brass to criticize somebody for what you did. vice president biden has a vocal supporter about these things. >> the ryan budget if passed that the govern ore said he endorsed would knock 19 million people off of medicaid. >> romney/ryan tax plan will raise taxes on middle-class families with a child, one or more children by an additional $2,000 a year. >> don't tell me what you value. show me your budget and i'll tell you what the value. >>> vice president biden will have some serious things to say this thursday. joining me is steve carnaci, co-host of "the cycle. he's writing in "salon" today about paul ryan's thing skin. thanks for coming on the show. >> thanks for having me. is he ready for joe biden? >> it's an open question. one thing we found is he hasn't been ready forred
at the debate last week as well. governor romney says that is how much president obama has cut from medicare. the obama campaign claims it is simply not true. immediate medicare will be a hot topic during the vice presidental debate this week especially with paul ryan controversial plan to overhaul the program. jim angle takes a look at the numbers for us breaking it down from washington. >> reporter: there is a critical dispute over whether president obama cut $716 billion from medicare which could seriously affect seniors or whether he saved 716 billion as he said in the debate. >> $716 billion we were able to save from the medicare program by no longer over paying insurance companies, by making sure that we weren't over paying providers. >> reporter: others, however, say they are not savings, they are cuts to medicare that shortchange providers such as doctors and hospitals. >> when you pay a provider of a service much, much less than they actually need to cover that you are costs, many of them will stop supplying it. >> reporter: that is the same assessment of the action wear reese at me
americans. wing voters also prefer president obama on healthcare, medicare and foreign policy. not by those huge margins, but that whole bit about connecting with ordinary americans. >> beats me, greta. must be ordinary americans who have jobs. >> greta: maybe that is it. >> i don't know what that means. the other question is, what do you want in a president? do you want a president who will lead us boldly into this century and protect us and put in policies that will bring about prosperity and protect freedom and the constitution or do you want a president who feels my needs, you know, whatever they may be, more? i don't know. i guess we'll see. >> greta: is the fact that there's early voting going on, do you see that as an advantage now to governor romney, at least this week, because he's riding high this week? >> well, yeah. but i think it's probably an overall advantage for the democrats. the power of the incumbency, the money of the incumbency. obama apparently raised $180 million last month. now, i'm sure all these campaign reform liberals are going to be up in arms about that, right?
romney as a souvenir of the night he crushed you in that debate. (laughter) and here's the thing, obama lost even though romney was lying his ass off the entire night. >> on medicare for current retirees, he's cutting $716 billion from the program. >> jon: not gutting $716 from the program. he is negotiating payments to providers and insurance companies, aka the exact same thing that is in paul ryan's budget plan. >> you put $9 o o-- $90 billion into green jobs, and these businesses, many of them are going out of business. i think about half of them of the ones that have been invested in, have gone to business. >> jon: well, almost half, out of nearly three dozen, three of them have been cut out so that is almost half except aka nowhere [bleep] near half. >> the president said we cut the deficit in half. unfortunately he doubled it. >> jon: 1.2 trillion when he took office t is 1.1 trillion now. mr. president are you just going throat him roll you. >> mr. president, two minutes. >> when i walked in the oval office i had more than a trillion dollar deficit greeting me. and we know where
the congressman doesn't like the affordable care act and obama, it extends medicare for eight years. it's a safety net. it's important for our seniors. works for our seniors. we ought not become destroying it. quite frankly, you have not stepped forth with ideas on how to make medicare solvent for the future. >> representative rehberg, 30 minutes. >> you don't extend medicare by taking $716 billion out. he said benefits were not going to cut. that's not the issue, the issue is doctors and hospitals will not be fairly reimbursed for seeing seniors. if president obama and senator tester say you will not lose your insurance under the healthcare reform, no, the problem is nobody will be able to give you that insurance. the doctor may not be able to see you. we must put that back by repealing obamacare. if by putting the money back into medicare, we can make it stronger and last longer and begin serious discussions of a bottom-up solution. >> question from tom to senator tester. >> yes senator tester, you frequently referred to as the only working farmer in the u.s. senate. trade issues by montana far
campaigning their opponents and boosting support for president obama. let's start with democrat tammie baldwin and the medicare debate. baldwin is three points ahead of tommy thompson in wisconsin. here's the main reason. thompson was caught on camera promising to do away with medicare and medicare. thompson has tried to clarify the comments. it's not working. the latest ad shows her taking care of her late grandparents. she promises to leave medicare alone. so baldwin is proving to be a tougher candidate than the republicans bargaining for in the badger state. but there's ools ooth surprise for the gop. elizabeth warren is ahead of scott brown in massachusetts. warren uses the 47% comment to go after brown on tax fairness. brown responds by attacking warren's native american heritage? his staffers were even caught on tape making racist gestures. brown thinks he can win the election on this issue, but it's not working. warren is ahead by five points. her fellow democrat in missouri is doing better. claire mccaskill is winning on women's issues. todd akin coined the phrase "legitimate rape." he
-state debate. over the course of the campaign, you will hear more about medicare reform. ultimately hope to bring the ideas of montana back to washington. rather than a d.c. top-down solution. that is what i thought the ryan proposal was, and certainly is what the obama plan is. >> senator tester, one minute. >> only in washington d.c. when you take excessive payment to insurance payments and eliminate waste, fraud and abuse, that will be called a bad thing. the fact of the matter is, not one benefit will be cut to medicare recipients. not one benefit. the fact of the matter is,we have been reimbursing insurance companies and provided no benefits to our seniors. it's time to sop that reimbursment and make this program good for generations to come. the i know the congressman doesn't like the affordable care act and obama, it extends medicare for eight years. we need to continue to look for ways to make medicare stronger. it's a safety net. it's important for our seniors. works for our seniors. we ought not become destroying it. quite frankly, you have not stepped forth with ideas on how t
came back to president obama has cut medicare benefits by $716 billion. >> yeah well there's -- there are a number of problems with that, starting with that it's not true. it's -- what he has done is they found savings on the provider side, so if you are a medicare beneficiary, you are not going to have your benefits reduced which is of course what people -- >> bill: it's insurance companies who participate in the medicare advantage -- >> yeah. >> bill: and are taking advantage of it. >> yeah, getting more reimbursement than really they should be, but though other part beyond that is that paul ryan included all of these cuts and really savings on the beneficiary side in his budget. mitt romney said he would of course support the ryan budget. now he is saying that is not my budget, that is his budget but he would sign it if it came to his desk. but the point is to criticize cuts that your running mate, the person you think is best qualified to step in for you, also endorsed along with the bulk of the republican conference, you know is a little bit
. that is not cutting the rates where there is abuse that's just cutting the rates. >> the obama campaignlaims that is not through. jim angle is live from washington to help us court it all out. >> reporter: as you showed, martha, governor romney insists the president cut 716 billion from medicare while the president argues he saved 716 billion east said during the debate. >> $716 billion we were able to save from the medicare program by no longer over paying insurance companies, by making sure that we weren't over paying providers. >> reporter: others, however, say they are not savings, they are cuts to medicare that shortchange providers such as doctors and hospitals. >> when you pay a provider of a service much, much less than they actually need to cover their costs, many of them will stop supplying it. >> reporter: now that is the same assessment of the action wear reese at medicare that showed the 716 billions would reduce payments so much that medicare would be worth less to doctors than medicaid healthcare for the poor drawing this comment during the debate. >> 15% of hospitals and nurs
is for people 55 and you under -- >> it's giving them the option for something -- >> it will destroy medicare. >> no, it won't. >> this is fascinating stuff. they have been showing for months evenly divided here into two. the registered voters and the likely voters. now they're doing both. among registered voters president obama has a three-point lead over mitt romney. 49%, 46% among registered. but among likely voters romney is leading by two points. if you look at the trend line of recent polling, you can see that obama in the blue line really picked up in september following his convention. we all saw that happen but he dropped and romney started gaining in the past several days following the debate. and as you just mentioned, bob, from ohio the president's firewall, a new cnn/opinion research poll shows obama up by four, 51%/47% among likely voters. that poll was taken after the debate -- actually after the debate. before the debate obama had a wider margin. i should point out something i learned today which i think you guys probably already know. a like lib voter as opposed to a register
listening to your discussions thus far today, and i agree with you, you don't want obama to relitigate the last debate and i agree he has to attack romney the man. it's not about rearguing the medicare issue as such. it's about revealing the fact that romney has been all over the map on various issues, will say anything on a given day to get through the day, and he has to be unmasked that way. >> well, that's what i would do, michelle. the facts are that romney believes basically that the status quo on health care before president obama came along is fine with him, 40 million people sitting in emergency rooms for most of the day to get some kind of basic care. he does say things like i want the auto industry to go bankrupt. he does say -- or his party does and he supports them, let's not have a law that says you have to get equal pay for equal work if you're a woman. these seem to be pretty fundamental positions he's taken and yet in the debate because his family apparently told him to go softer he was able to mask them. >> and i feel for obama because as lackluster as his performance
they will go after that, not just medicare, but your insurance and tax it with 20 taxes to give money to other people. there's a lot of damage coming to the economy with obama being re-elected. the polls show that's less likely today than a week ago are very helpful to the economy and may mean we can get through this without another recession. gerri: we talked about the multimillion dollar campaign that the leaders in washington, the ceos, wall street, and others put together. ironic, isn't it? wall street ceos defend themselves in front of congress, but they are chiding them for not doing their job. it's funny. grover, thank you for your time. >> good to be with you. gerri: all right. the fiscal cliff will no doubt hit regular investors hard. many lost faith in the stock market pulling more than a hundred billion dollars out of mutual stock funds out of fear since 2009. the former chairman of the securities and exchange commission joins me now by telephone. chairman, thank you for coming on the show tonight. great to talk to you. it's been yeahs since i talked to you, and i want your opinion
. it hasn't mattered about obama care. the debate seemingly doesn't matter if romney wins or if obama wins. >> that's logical when you think about it. you look at the history of this country. we've had a lot of presidents. a lot of presidents throughout the medicare sector. it really doesn't matter who the president is going to be. hospitals are going to be there. hospitals are the top of the pyramid for the delivery system in this country. so we're going to have hospitals whether it's romney or whether it's obama. 10 we're in a very good position throughout the election and beyond. >> are you the only publicly traded guys really in this sector? >> we are. we're the only ones that focus exclusively on hospital. >> and are there a lot of hospitals left that would want to do a deal with you? do they understand your model and that this could be beneficial for them and for you? >> there are a lot of hospitals there is about a half a trillion dollars of available hospital property out there. >> half a trillion? >> half a trillion. >> so every day you're trolling for new properties? >> we are. t
, but they also have to explain why they haven't done more good things, why the glass is only half full. and obama has a case, if he wants to make it, which is that slowly but surely, step by step, brick by brick, we're rebuilding the economy and we're doing it without cutting medicare, we're doing it without cutting contraception, we're doing it without taking away student loans. so, i can give you gain without pain, and he wants you to have pain today for someone else's tax gains. it's a hard case to make now. >> all right, so your book, though, examines the winners, the losers of the last 60 years of presidential campaigns. at this point in time, what are your predictions for what we see coming up next month? >> well, i see now -- romney did more than i thought he could in the first debate. his big job was to get people to say maybe there's more to him than i thought, and he immediately brought back the uncomfortable republicans, but he also opened everybody else's eyes. and it wasn't just the untruths he may have told. he also said some truths that are very powerful, and one of them was i can

center. had ptsd. if they take away my medicare and social security, i would be dead. host: now republican caller, vinny. caller: i really follow this. one thing i saw was michelle obama gave a speech on c-span in january of 2007 where she said blacks should make whites slaves. that is in the c-span archives. host: this was 2007? caller: january. she said whites should be slaves and blacks should be slave owners. host: we will check into that. let's move on to rod in florida on our democratic line. caller: hello. i think they do make a little bit of a difference in the appearance of their husband. i would think that barack obama comes from a lower income family and his wife probably histoo, working class people -- and his wife probably did, too. ann romney has been a stay at home mother and has a lot of people working for her in the home. i think it does make a difference. host: this on twitter -- here's more about the story we mentioned a moment ago from wtop radio in washington -- let's hear ann romney last night on the campaign trail.
